I know someone here must have seen it!

Tarantino-esque

Seriously, I read the script months ago. It’s basically Kill Bill or Inglourious Basterds but with a different genre. Exactly what you’d expect and if you’re a big fan of his, I can’t see you not loving this one.

Hahaha. For some reason I thought you wanted to know how the character got unchained.

It’s off the chain.

Some might call it Tarantino’s weak link.

I hear there’s blue-eyed murder in a size five dress.

The musical numbers are doozies.

I would be VERY interested to see Tarantino do a musical…

Advance screenings all over the place: http://advancescreenings.com/movie/django_unchained/

I can’t imagine I’ll go out of my way to find out.

Waukesha, WI, Greenfield, IN, Newport, KY, Sterling Heights, MI, and Dallas and Plano as about as not “all over the place” as anywhere I can think of.

Because those are the only places Django Unchained is being screened/has been screened? No sir. I posted that link not as an indication that “all over the place” precisely refers to the listed contents.

No offense to its citizens, but I dunno where Waukesha, WI, is. I can’t imagine it has a higher population than Tallahassee, and yet we never get advance screenings. Pitch Perfect is the only one I’ve been to. I went to a screening of For a Good Time, Call… earlier this year that was passed off as an advance screening, but the film was already playing in select cities.

Oh well, at least Django is opening wide. I’ll order my Christmas Day ticket as soon as it goes on sale.

you know the whole cliche of thrilling of matching tarantino and western makes me even more thrilled because you know my friend actually cliches are good thing :d

Would be cool if he used the chain to kill people. It would be a good metaphor & poetic justice or something. Matt said “opening wide”. Uh hu hu hu.

I hear that It’s like a cross between Roots, Walking Tall, & Guys & Dolls.

It’s crap. Easily his worst film (and I wasn’t offended by it nor did I find it to be racist—it just sucked).

Many of Tarantino’s films are a lot better but I still thought that this film was quite interesting, funny and surprising compared to a lot of other film’s (cough* best picture nominee’s) I saw this year. I know that with repeated viewings it will grow on me.

Dennis...Brian

I did find it a bit racist. It is better than IB or KB vol 1 but it (and his films should never be nominated) they are bad genre films, overlong by half.

Steve

I did not like is relentless use of the “N” word and I felt embarrassed for the white actors in the film.

Steve

Cut some of the music choices, delete about 220 “N” words and the film would be really great.

My final comment for the day is:
The scene in which DiCaprio’s character yells at the top of his lungs for his sister when they arrive at his plantation was so freakin awesome that I nearly wet myself!!!!

Just finished it myself. One of his worst films definitely, but has its moments. I find it weird so many people are jumping on the offensive bandwagon. Due to the circumstances of what happens in the story none of the language seemed particularly out of place in terms of expletives. What did seem out of place was how whenever somebody got shot they practically exploded in guts. Also contained probably my least favorite soundtrack in a Tarantino movie. Usually I like his music choices, but here it just felt weird and often “too much”. I was surprised to find myself liking DiCaprio though, him and Sam Jackson definitely stole the show for me.
